presidential candidate, mitt romney. he is scheduled to give a recall of a major address on foreign policy. we'll have that for you when it gets underway. it is scheduled for 11:20 eastern and we will have that for you on c-span. right now, a preview of the speech from this morning's "washington journal." host: we want to talk a little bit about this speech today. thank you for joining us. what does mitt romney have to do in this speech? what sort of expectations are built up? guest: this will be romney's foreign-policy speech. it is clearly pretty late in the game for him to be delivering a speech like this. early voting has started in the number of states. he wants to continue some of the momentum he built up last week's debate. it's a chance for him to make a clear contrast between himself and the president. more importantly, it's another chance for his campaign to show that there is more of a choice between him and obama and less of a referendum. when romney pick his running mate this summer, there was a sense that this would be a chance for him to outline things for his own and have a pol

over mr. romney on the broad issue of foreign policy. and then we get into some real contested ground. the president is favored on the issue of taxes, but on the generic question of who would be better trusted to handle the economy, mr. romney leads by three. on the deficit, mr. romney leads by nine. on all of these issues, that's the one on which he has the strongest trust from voters as compared with president obama. and that confidence in mr. romney on the deficit turns up not just in the nbc/"wall street journal" poll, but in a lot of national polls. even though he hasn't given a lot of details as to how he would handle the deficit as an issue. the bottom line, there's no question as to who you would rather be here, right? you would rather be president obama than mitt romney looking at these numbers. that plus 19 advantage that the president has on looking out for the middle class, that is a death nail for mr. romney's campaign if he cannot turn that around. but i think looking ahead to tonight's debate, there is a real opportunity in the huge disconnect in the electorate, in a wa

governor mitt romney is getting a major foreign policy address later today, just to the south of us, addressing many of the middle east policy question that we will be discussing over the course of the day. and i hope that we will be able to take a look at what the public opinion data may reveal about the potential popularity of the positions governor romney is putting forth. but let me start by saying the arab awakening in many ways seems to put forward a coherent narrative to international observers and particularly to the american public in some ways very quickly the first few months of peaceful protesters facing off against the police force is a brutal dictatorships, and gateway to windows dictators did, in fact, embark on a violent response, and much more mixed picture of violent uprisings in libya and elsewhere, and now what looks like an increasingly entrenched civil war, perhaps emerging as a sectarian war in syria. and then finally last month with the eruption of demonstrations in tunis, cairo, and elsewhere not only in the middle east but across the muslim world in protest

, you brought up the libya thing and people aren't interesting. if romney had given a speech, had made the argument that this is part of -- simply a symptom of a larger development of a whole foreign policy in collapse, of the fact that the al qaeda which he was spiking the football for a week. al qaeda is back. we have got a new slogan for biden. which is bin laden dead. al qaeda alive. that was the meaning of all of this you could have attached the libya story. not as a conspiracy or coverup story. you would say the larger argument, the reason they had to cover it up. the reason they had to pretend it was all about a demonstration and video is because they can't admit is completely exploded. so if you create the larger context all the little events otherwise go uns inned especially by the media. you put them in context. would get a headline with al qaeda is back and we're going to be the target number one. >> i have a third point but that's going to have to be next week. >> bill: all right, charles. >> i'm not governor perry. >> bill: factor tip of the day what i'm doing early tomorr
